Ok well it's been a long time since I posted anything. Over a month if you're keeping track. I'm sure all my followers have since moved on to bigger, better green pastures. But if you are still putting up with my neglect, then here's a big ice cream treat from me to you!
Now for an update on my life...
I officially have no job for next year.
I mentioned in my last post that my union president was very convinced that I had a case against my administration for wrongly terminating me. Everyone told me it was an easy case with an obvious outcome..me winning.
However, the steam has passed and my union president isn't as ambitous now that the end of the school year is here. I was told that the school would simply "lawyer up" and retract their statements to me. Then just come up with a more specific reason for letting me go.
I don't really have a whole lot to say about it anymore....I've cried my tears, yelled my angry words, prayed until I feel as though I'm hurting God's eardrums, and now I'm left with unemployement. I'm also left with the 100% belief that I was not meant to be at that school. In comparison to most other districts, this one can be summed up in one word *crazy*.
I haven't told my students yet...I don't know how. They keep asking me why I'm taking things off my walls when I will just have to put it all back up next year. How do I respond to that without bursting into tears? I don't know that answer yet, so I try to ignore. Not the best choice, I'm sure but it's all I can manage right now.
I have applied at one other school. I know, you're all thinking only one school! That's all that's out there in my area right now. And since we just moved back last year, we don't exactly have the excitement to up and move a hundred some miles away again. But if any of you know of some promising employement opportunities in your districts, I wouldn't be opposed to applying.
I'm praying that the Lord will guide my steps. He brought me back to NY for this job, so I know he has a plan.
In other news, my hubby is playing at Oakmont in Pittsburg, PA on Mon & Tues!! This is a huge deal. The US Open was played there a few years ago and according to the mister, it's a pretty intense course. SO lots of prayers that he plays his best and continues to be a good testimony on the golf course.
Also, he beat Arnold Palmer's grandson at the qualifying round. He didn't seem too excited about that, but the way I look at is his name was
probably maybe mentioned in a conversation between a golf legend and his grandson. Which is a giant deal!!!
Only 10 more days with my firsties. Very bittersweet. Check back tomorrow for some freebies!
